"Nothing rests; everything moves; everything vibrates." - The Kybalion
As a culture we throw around the word "vibes" quite a bit! From good vibes, positive vibes only, I do be vibin' though, that's a vibe, she's a whole vibe, your apartment is a vibe!! So on and so forth. Have you ever stopped to think what that truly means? What is it to "be a vibe"? The third Hermetic Principle of Nature tells us that everything, in all 3 planes (physical, mental, and spiritual), holds a particular vibration.
The informal definition of a vibration: a person's emotional state, the atmosphere of a place, or the associations of an object, as communicated to and felt by others. We feel vibes all around us because we are just that! Ever feel like someone is staring at you? You look over and the person quickly turns away out of embarrassment! The atoms which comprise your being (and comprises all things in the Universe) felt the oscillating atoms of the person who was focused on your booty...I mean your beauty :)
I used to toss around the words "vibration" and "frequency" as interchangeable, and I'm sure some of you do as well. So let's clear this up because they are different! A vibration describes the oscillating and vibrating movement of atoms caused by energy; a frequency is the rate at which the vibrations and oscillations occur. To put this into practical terms: fear and anger are heavy vibrations with low frequencies & peace and joy are light vibrations with high frequencies. I wanted to point this out as I feel it's important to overstand the difference between the two. As famed inventor & engineer Nikola Tesla once said, "if you want to find the secrets of the universe, think in terms of energy, frequency, and vibration." And to overstand the Universe is to overstand the Self; to overstand the Self is to experience true freedom!
So how can you apply the Principle of Vibration into your everyday life? Get in control of your vibe. I'm sure you've heard the saying "your vibe attracts your tribe," well it attracts everything else as well. If you put out vibrations of scarcity mindset the Universe will match that vibration, not because it hates you, but because you're choosing to put those vibes out there! How can you get in control of your vibes? Refer to the first 2 Principles: The Principle of Mentalism and The Principle of Correspondence. Become aware of your thoughts, and allow them to put you in a place of ease rather than uncertainty. Do this with the overstanding that your thoughts and actions have corresponding counterparts in the Universe, and they will be brought to you...whether you like it or not! Taking just a few moments every rising to be still, take deep breaths, and meditate is a wonderful way to get in control of your vibe. You truly are the master of your destiny, master your vibration master your life!
